Hello Goodmans, I use Clipgrab as my YouTube downloader, plus it can download from Facebook too as well as a whole host of others.
These instructions will give you the latest version and as it is a App-Image it will be set as a launcher inside Menu/Internet.
Follow the instructions below and change mark to your username.
Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence…
Create a directory for the ClipGrab AppImage:
mkdir -p ~/.AppImages/ClipGrab
make it the current directory:
download the ClipGrab appimage into it:
wget -O ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage https://download.clipgrab.org/ClipGrab-3.8.13-x86_64.AppImage
make the ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage executable:
chmod +x ~/.AppImages/ClipGrab/ClipGrab-Latest.AppImage
download an image to use as an icon:
create a launcher for it by creating a folder in .local called applications, then running:
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications
and when a blank file opens, make it read:-
Comment=Download YouTube, Dailymotion, etc. Video Clips
(be sure to change the 2 instances of ‘mark’ to your username)
SAVE the file.
Then logout or reboot for changes to take effect. You should see ClipGrab inside Menu/Internet.
